    Parliament Hill Vigil for the Human Rights Defenders in Syria April 30

    Saturday April 30th 12:30-1:30pm
    Parliament Hill 
    Ottawa

    At the end of April  2016, the family of Syrian human rights defender and lawyer Razan Zaitouneh will mark another birthday without her. Instead of celebrating, they are demanding justice and working to ensure that the cases of thousands of “disappeared” people are not forgotten as the Syrian conflict grinds into its sixth year with no end in sight.

    On December 9, 2013, Razan, her husband Wael Hamada and their colleagues Samira Khalil and Nazem Hamadi – collectively known as the “Duma Four” – were abducted during a raid by a group of armed men on the offices of the VDC in Duma, near Damascus. They have not been seen since.

    Join us on Parliament Hill where we will gather and read out message of solidarity and birthday greetings.
